Here's an EPAC NEMA fixture, It originally had a 125 watt ballast but unfortunately it was burn't up. I replaced it with a 100 watt General electric MV ballast (shown here: http://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=3678&pos=2&pid=89481 )

Very cool! Also, I didn't know 125 watt lamps were used in North America.

Nice find, note it has the PEMCO logo on the head? I know EPAC used to do a cobrahead which was identical to a PEMCO in the USA.

I have a working 125w merc from Canada, click here.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

I think 125 watt MV's were used alot in Canada, I see quite a few fixtures around here that use 125 watt merc's.

@Silverliner: The bracket on your fixture looks like it is a Mcgraw-Edison one.

Nope it's a Powerlite. Powerlite seems to have used ideas from other manufacturers though. The B2255 is strikingly similar to the M-400A.

Looks like plastic. Glass refractors always have larger prisms than plastic refractors.

This one is plastic. I had to buy a replacement optics from cooper lighting and remove the cheap aluminum reflector to fit it on this fixture. Original refractors were usually lexalite type 5's (plastic too)

Is this a Canadian fixture?

He's Canadian so that's a good assumption.
